Description
Far out at the world’s largest baymouth barrier dune formation there was a forest. This forest was old before it died, and it's been dead for a long time. A hundred years ago, maybe longer, the ecosystem supporting the forest changed, and this White Cedar bog became dry. No longer able to support the moisture loving forest the trees succumbed to the arid conditions. Most of the forest now lays on the ground, above or below the shifting sand but some still stand, their trunks having been carved by the grit filled wind, a marker of an ancient landscape.
